as it should be. host: does religion played a part in virginia voters? guest: absolutely. in virginia, like in many states, you see a clear link between the level of religiosity, the frequency of religious attendance, whether it is 8 synagogue or a christian or catholic church -- what you see is the more frequently people participate in religious activities, the more likely they are to vote republican. particularly evangelical christian communities, which tend to be more organized in rural parts of the state, very aggressive efforts to connect with fellow members of accommodation to bring out more people for mitt romney. this is the key part of the advantage that republicans have in many parts of the south. it is the presence of organized, religiously oriented political activity. for gin is the home state of the jerry falwell and pat robinson -- virginia is the home state of jerry falwell and pat robertson. what you see in northern virginia, in less religiously oriented part of the state, is that jerry falwell and pat robertson have little impact, perhaps only in a negative wait for many vo

and for religious discrimination. it's very hard to define defamation of religion. so the president in his speech will have to condemn the video that makes fun of the prophet muhammad without at the same time apologizing for the for amendment. host: it's not just the turkish president asking for this. it's also the new egyptian president mohamed morsi who will be calling for this. what do you make of that, given the protests in cairo recently and president obama's relationship with this new president? guest: all the leaders coming, including mohamed morsi, are playing a double game. applying a domestic game and an international game. he is the head of an islamist government, not a jihadist government, but an islamist government led by the muslim brotherhood. he must condemn this and call for international action. at the same time, people in the u.s. are very wary about whether or not he will communicate a style of governance that is zero more in the turkish style where there's a big religious influence within the government but there will also be tolerance for pluralism. i expect he will call for
